5.0 out of 5 stars Good for older children too..., 24 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Huge Bag of Worries (Paperback)
I asked our oldest son, who had a huge bag of worries, to read this to his younger siblings. Although it is not aimed at his age he was able to hear and respond to the clear and simple message which applies to any age. It has really helped.

I'm so glad someone mentioned "age".

My son has a huge "bag of worries" and he's had it for a very long time. I constantly look for ways in which to help (Matthew Johnstone's books: "I had a black dog", "Living with a black dog" and most recently "Quiet the Mind", have been wonderful) but although we all now perhaps know more of what our son lives with, it's still difficult for him to find the right strategy for signalling that help/support is needed. (That black dog lurks in dark corners; always there, but sometimes more assertive than others.)

Maybe with this book I could be a bit devious! My son is all grown up now, with a 5 year old son himself - perhaps if I buy this book ostensibly for my grandson, my son might feel some benefit and through it, find a strategy for communicating his burden to us.
